New process for 2019-2020

If your application is not selected for verification, there are no messages on your Student Aid Report about conflicting information, and there are no discrepancies that must be resolved by our office, you may not be required to submit any documents to our office for review. As a result, you must ensure to take care of the following:

  • Check for Financial Aid Requirements on the Zone - if you don't have any requirements to submit, wait while we review your eligibility.
  • If eligible, you will be notified by our office to review your financial aid offer on the Zone.
  • You will have to "ACCEPT" your offer online prior to any funds being disbursed. 
    • Step 1: Log-in to CLASS-Web and select the "Financial Aid" tab
    • Step 2: Select "My Eligibility"
    • Step 3: Select "Student Requirements"
    • Step 4: Select Award Year "2019-2020"
    • Step 5: Select "Authorization and Accept FinAid Terms & Responsabilities"
    • Step 6: Read and select "Accept"

Please see this document to guide you on how to "Accept" financial aid.
